Re: Looking for enlistees for last USN Gearing class DD
Was on the USS Gearing DD710(First of it's class) from 1971 - 1973 when it was finally laid to rest and put out of commission. Many great memories great ship. I was a BT Lived in the foward firehole. Times I did not see daylight for days because of the 6 & 6 watch. Was tough and so was Chief Schroder. We loved him. He was our 2nd father.
Bless all who served.
